My honeymoon

I'm back from my honeymoon..
Fun filled activities everyday for 7 days.
It's winter in Australia, and the nights tend to be cold, but since we went to Gold Coast the lowest temperature i guess was only about 16 degrees..the days are a bit warmer with sunshine but with cold winds.Hence walking around Surfers Paradise was great.No sweat at all..I bet i could walk 1 km without breaking a sweat.

We managed to go to all the places we planned.We went to Movieworld, Seaworld,we went whale watching(my dream came true),the wildlife park(saw kangaroos and koalas), shopping at harbour town(a must go for factory outlet shopping place)..
Food wise was easy there..there were alot of halal shops there..Quite a few malaysian restaurants,, kebab stalls and stuff, Halal Indian restaurants..We ate like we were in Malaysia..spent a fortune on food..Boy memang dari segi food memang takde nak saving2..

We travelled around by bus..the buses are so reliable and on time..But it could be quite pricey for a bus ride if you convert it to ringgit...Like 20 dollars for a return trip to movie world.Spend like almost 150 dollars on bus rides.
It starts to get dark at aroun it feels like the nights are longer there..
There was one night that boy went to bed at 8pm..and woke up at 2am..

We had a blast shopping there..There was one day in Harbourtown's Polo Ralph Lauren store, every item was on a 50% discount..memang best sgt..the 2nd time we went there dah takde sale..luckily we bought the clothes we wanted the 1st time we went..At ValleyGirl's stores,ladies clothes were like 10 dollars and all..! Went crazy.but the only thing holding me back was that i have to keep in mind of the excess weight for luggage since we were flying with Air Asia..

Whale watching was spectacular..we were lucky to see quite a few sangat.they're huge!!there were even dolphins following our cruise ship..bestnya..Actually,whale watching was the last thing to do in our list..because its quite expensive..tapi boy insists that we go, sebab he knew it really meant alot to me..Furthermore, the whale wathcing season is only in winter..then the whales migrate and pass through the coast on their way back up north to the antartic.i love my husband for making my dream come true.

On the other hand, i could do without going to Movie world since i've always been afraid of going on rollercoasters.Boy tricked me on going on one of the rides..he said it was the least scariest.Happened to be that i didnt get the full view of the ride before i got on it..Lethal weapon 2 and so its called..I got on it..i was bloody quiet for the whole 1 minute i was on it..praying inside..cursing boy inside my heart...IT HAPPENED TO BE THE SCARIEST RIDE IN MOVIEWORLD..IT HAD 2 OR 3 LOOPS!!.
Never in my life that i thought i would go on a roller coaster that had loops.!!!
But now, i'm thanking boy for making me do it..but i'll never do it again!\

All in all, we had an exciting honeymoon/trip..spent quality time exploring the Gold Coast with my husband.
